now i can't even get it on

so i have this mild addiction. i love this stuff. it started when i was 6 and my grandma gave me special K one day because we were out of rice krispies. then for some reason they stopped buying that and i graduated to wheaties. then total. then, one day when i was in high school mom decided that total was too expensive and she bought these. i thought i'd died and gone to heaven.

last year, sometime, post came out with Cinnamon & Sugar Shredded Wheat, which replaced the Bran Flakes in every. single. store. in. LA.

i was horrified. i tried to eat wheat chex to get my needed fiber (turns out i'm a bit of a stress case, and a high fiber diet prevents me from feeling the negative dietary tract effects that my stress likes to pile upon me) but that only lasted a week or so.

i bought 10 boxes on the shipping alone was $15. but i was happy. i requested from two different stores that they carry it again, and they say they can't. i tried to eat Ralphs' brand bran flakes but they just weren't the same.

and now i can't even get them on anymore. what if Post stops making them altogether? my parents can get them in Redding, and in Weaverville. WHY NOT HERE?!

oh, bran flakes. what will i ever do without you?

I know you're feeling a sense of loss, and in turn, probably a great deal of stress. Which seems to be why you would really like to get your hands on a huge supply of that cereal. So, right now, I will say that I am sorry for your turmoil. But......your blog really, really, made me laugh. And I thank you for that. Best wishes on your bran flake quest!

Does that mean we'll be sending a ton of Bran Flakes every so often or something to the equivalent?

You girl are such a goober >< This make me laugh. Your addicted to freaking bran flakes, its like your crack! We are gonna have to do a family intervention and send you to detox for the darn stuff lol.

Oh my silly KristenHead. I think that your sister has the right idea to start sending you case loads of them. Can't you order from post directly? I think you better try out more brand type stuff just in case post does stop making them. Sorry if that sounded like Eyore.
